I know this sounds crazy. But, if and when Andre Johnson becomes available ( besides giving up their first born), how and could Payloo pull off a trade. Can't stop dreaming about this. - Derrick W.

I don't think that's happening, nor do I really share your desire for the Saints the sign him. The Saints just drafted a wide receiver with their first round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft so I imagine they feel comfortable where they're at right now as it relates to receiver. I would be very surprised if Johnson is in their plans or on their radar right now. Besides, Johnson would cost way more than the Saints could probably afford. According to the NFLPA, the Saints currently have only $1,718,621 in salary cap space. Mickey is good, but I don't know if he's that good.

What kind of impact do you think Marcus Ball will have this season? - Henry P.

Eh. I'm not expecting him to be a Pro Bowler by any means. As far as overall impact, I'd say it would be minimal. At best, I think we'd be lucky to see him become a part-time role player. He'll have to work hard to make the team during training camp, just like most everyone else. Ball will also have the added disadvantage of having to adjust from the CFL style to the NFL. But hey, you never know.

How many lame opinion and puff piece articles will we have to read before training camp starts? - Tim P.

About as many stupid comments we've got to read from disrespectful readers such as yourself.
